The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Canada is pleased to hear that the 1,053 Saudi medical residents and fellows in Canada have received notice from the Saudi Ministry of Education indicating that they may continue in their positions until an alternative assignment is arranged.
This is good news for the Saudi medical graduates, as well as the Canadian hospitals that benefit from the daily care these trainees provide to patients across Canada. This decision is also positive news for Canadian medical schools that benefit from the expertise of Saudi medical students.
In addition, this means that the Saudi medical trainees who have completed their training will be able to write their fall exams.
At this point in time, it’s unclear whether Saudi Arabian residents and fellows who are scheduled to start programs in Canada this year will be able to do so.
